A dynamic programming model is suggested as a core of a procedure to determine optimal number of classrooms and schools in a community which faces a trend of immigration. The model captures the dynamics of the expansion process and can handle, to a certain extent, uncertainty in future immigration. In certain conditions, the model is similar to inventory models for which computations can be efficiently carried out.
